I find it strange when I use these words, as far as the appropriate tone is concerned, what can I do?
As I am not a native speaker, the informal expressions I've learnt are limited.
I have heard of some of them, such as "kind of" and "way"...
e.g. I kind of like her.
It is kind of boring.
e.g. It is way better than others.
would you be kind enough to give me other examples?
by the way, please check my passage if there are any mistakes.
ThomaasI always get confused when writing letters to friends. what words should be used instead of using formal words?Welcome to the Forums, Thomaas!
As long as you are writing to friends, you can of course use those informal words.
"alot" is informal too
There are so many informal words/expressions that it's hard to make a list...
haha, "heaps of " is another informal word which is quite useful.
Anonymous:Hi i need some help please. For the last 2 years i have been getting alot of problems with my daughters father and even tho i have told him sevral times that i do not want to discuss my daughter via email there is no other way he is willing to contact me, so i have to put up with it for our daughters sake. she is only 18 months old and already i am having problems with him. The thing is he sends me email and he is very formal with his words. He puts me down all the time and I have not got a glue how to do a formal letter back to him. Could anyone help me please? if i wrote what i want to say to him out, would someone word it better for me and make it formal? I really hope someone can help me out i would be ever so greatful.

Which words seem like those you would use in a conversation with a friend?
